The legendary movie star and sex symbol, who died this morning from cardiac arrest, was best known for his big-screen work, but also he won accolades for starring on the CBS sitcom Evening Shade for four seasons, from 1990 to 1994. Reynolds was nominated twice for the Emmy for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series, winning once, and nominated three times for the Golden Globe for best performance by an actor in a TV series, comedy or musical, also winning once. He also lent his voice to the late 1980s fantasy sitcom Out of this World, playing the alien father of a half-human, half-alien girl. Reynolds death comes six months after he sat for an extended interview with Conan O'Brien, where they touched on everything on him being "in love" with Johnny Carson to his friendship with Marilyn Monroe.

The Late Show host's visit to Watch What Happens Live went surreal last night when Andy Cohen had an animated talking "Shady Col-Bear!" ask him about the much-criticized Spicer bit. Asked if he regretted it, Colbert said: "Not at all. I had no fear that it would redeem him. I knew that there would be some people that wouldn’t like it, and the funny thing was is that right before I brought him out, I looked around the room and I thought to myself, ‘There’s not one joke that I’ve told tonight to this room full of liberals that was a risk other than the one I’m about to do,’ and it was the joke I most wanted to do.” As for Colbert's remarks on Moonves' sexual harassment scandal, The Late Show host said he spent days preparing his comments, and that his show notified CBS about what he was going to say 30 minutes before taping.

Neve Campbell approves of the Party of Five reboot, says she'd love to reprise her character
“I love the idea of the new reboot because it’s very timely,” Campbell told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “From what I understand (after talking with co-creator) Chris Keyser… they’re doing it with a Mexican family whose parents have been sent across the border, and they have to figure out how to stay together and be a family and raise each other. I think that’s really poignant and important, and I’m really impressed. So if they want me to come… and do a scene in it, I probably would.”
